Nancy’s Peak is a 5.5km, grade 4 Circuit hike located in Porongurup National Park Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.

Summary

A great circuit walk, Nancy’s Peak traverses the main peak of the Porongurup Ranges 23 kilometres from Mount Barker in the Great Southern region.. As well as the beauty of the moss-covered granite rocks and the lush forest, the views are magnificent with the Stirling Ranges visible to the north and, on a clear day, you can see the Southern Ocean.

Commencing from the Porongurup Car Park, the trail passes by the ‘Tree in the Rock’ before climbing to the top of the mountain’s ridge. On the way, the trail passes through different ecosystems such as karri forest and moist glades of mosses. Emerging from the forest on the granite outcrops you will see the views to the Stirling Ranges and Southern Ocean. Across the outcrops, the trail continues over a few peaks before descending into a pass between Nancy’s Peak and Devils Slide. Once on the main track between the two, it’s a fairly simple karri forest ramble back to the Car Park. This is one of many trails in the Porongurup area.  Other trails range from the Bolganup Heritage Trail, which is an easy 600 metre circuit, to a three-hour return hike to Marmabup Rock which is recommended for experienced bushwalkers only.  The Castle Rock trail takes you past the famous balancing rock and up to stand on Castle Rock.
